In 1976 FMC revolutionised the harvesting of peas with the H-2 trailed viner featuring the unique five beater planetary threshing system.  This was important because it paved the way for the giant self-propelled pea harvesters of today.

In this programme we trace the story of the FMC self-propelled pea harvester from the H-2 to the 679 - the worlds first pod picking self-propelled pea viner.  However the story does not stop there.  In 1989 FMC unleashed the 979 pea harvester, a massive six wheeled leviathan of a machine and the first to be fitted with six powered wheels.  The 979 changed the pea harvest dramatically and, as we see, the six wheeled machine gradually evolved into the 979AT and 979CT as the company that built it changed from FMC to PMC.  Competition from other manufacturers also led to rival six wheeled monster harvesters.

This brings us to the present day.  We study the PMC 989, the first of a new generation of pea harvesters.  The presenter, Stephen Richmond, has his own 989 and explains just why he likes it.

Both rare archive and contemporary footage makes this a unique and fascinating programme as the story of the six wheeled pea viner is revealed.  The programme finishes in style with the brand new and simply huge PMC 1089.
